Man in jail for terrorist threats

RAPID RIVER – A Rapid River man was arrested Friday for allegedly making terroristic threats and attempted manufacturing of explosive devices.

The 28-year-old man was arrested without incident at his Masonville Township residence by troopers from the Michigan State Police Gladstone Post Friday night.

A joint investigation by troopers, along with FBI, and Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) officers led to his arrest.

The investigation was initiated after the subject, a convicted felon, made threats on the Internet to build an explosive device and attempt to harm people at a public venue.

Charges were later authorized by the Delta County Prosecutor’s Office.

The man faces felony charges and is currently lodged in Delta County Jail without bond. His arraignment was scheduled for this morning.

The suspect’s name is not being released pending his arraignment in the 94th District Court of Delta County.

The incident remains under investigation.
